Complete your Bachelor's degree in Nursing and advance your career

The Registered Nurse (RN) to Bachelor’s Degree of Science in Nursing (BSN) education program can be completed at several different Mississippi schools. There are 7 campus-based programs and 25+ online RN to BSN programs for Mississippi students to choose from.


The first step towards completing your BSN degree is to research individual schools and learn more about the details of their RN-BSN programs. Find out which schools are close to where you live, what class schedules are available and which programs have the curriculum that best suits your professional goals. Once the learning institution has been chosen, the curriculum should match the courses you need to earn your degree. If attending classes in person is difficult due to your current work schedule, availability of campus locations or personal preferences, then an online RN to BSN program might be a better option. Most online programs consist of courses in composition, algebra, history, social science, economics, cultural diversity, and nursing science. There will also be professional nursing courses that cover topics such as transitioning and health assessment. Other nursing classes teach information systems and evidence-based practice, along with community health nursing, collaborative health care and a final culminating project. Online programs might include a required clinical component as well, which will usually be offered at a local hospital or medical facility.

The career benefits of an RN to BSN program in Mississippi outweigh the costs of the program if you intend on remaining a registered nurse for several years. The average cost for a two-year program averages $28,000 and varies from school to school. Career prospects for an RN with a BSN degree are strong and are expected to continue to grow along with the overall demand for healthcare services. A large percentage of students find employment in private doctors offices, nursing homes, assisted living centers and hospitals. There is currently high demand for BSN-degree RNs in outpatient facilities throughout Mississippi. Many specialized care centers strongly prefer hiring registered nurses with BSN degrees to ensure that their nursing staff will be highly knowledgeable and as effective as possible. The main goal of RN to BSN programs is to enhance the quality of the nursing workforce.
